About the review, we must be sure that the functions are all async (for 
thosewho have a reply). I sent a mail about that some weeks ago, which 
lists which package must be reviewed and how many functions in it must be 
changed to be async.

Of course, i have forgotten to commit the patches this week end (i am 
porting the efl to windows ce these days and it takes all my free time)
